What to wear for a romantic holiday evening

Fashion advice for women 40+ cruise evening wardrobe



What do you wear for a romantic evening on a cruise ship.

In the first image I have selected a casual maxi dress that can just as easily be worn round the pool in the day. I have kept the pallet clean and cool. Ocean blue and cream with silver accessories.

If you don’t have a cruise planned for this summer all these outfits would work just as well for summer parties or for any romantic star studded night “a deux”

You may well have more formal nights in your calendar so I have selected a full on evening dress with glitter and gleam. This dress would work well for a formal wedding or summer ball.

    This is really helpful. I live in Malta and we have few places to shop for nice clothes. Your suggestions we can buy online with confidence. Thanks. I like your choices.

    Beautiful colour combinations…ocean blue and cream absolutely stunning. I would certainly wear a maxi dress although my go to favourites are my wide pants and silk camisoles and maybe a little cashmere for the cooler evenings 🙂
    Have a wonderful weekend, Josephine and thank you for popping by this week always lovely to hear from you.

    Color combo is gorgeous, white hair looks sensational, especially with red lipstick. Thanks for sharing, enjoyed the post.
